HOW ARE WE DEALING WITH COVID AT EMPOWER FUTBOL?
The health and safety of our staff and players is most important to us.Though training will look differently for the time being, we strive to provide clients with the best possible experience.
You can expect smaller groups, non-contact games, and socially distanced "drills". Guest coaches, and strength and conditioning training will still continue, but will look differently. Players will be split into small groups, while practicing social distancing, and sanitizing spaces after use. Changing rooms will be used under careful instruction by one of our staff.
Staff will be required to wear proper PPE, and will be responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of our space and equipment.
No staff or player will be able to participate in our clinics if they experience any COVID-related symptoms.
Prior to each session, players will have their temperature checked by a staff member, and will be asked to check into the "COVID app". Each day staff and players will be screened to ensure that they are not experiencing any symptoms. Staff and players will be required to wash their hands between all activities, and after using the washrooms.
We have been and will continue to work with our local MPP and Health Officials to ensure that we are staying current/practicing the latest COVID protocols.
Empower Futbol believes in the "whole-player" experience, and know how important it is for youth players to have the opportunity to learn all parts of their game through broken-down, specific instruction. Our clinics are created and delivered by experienced coaches and former elite-level players who know how to demonstrate and instruct proper form. We welcome players competing at the club/academy level from age groups U9 to U17.
Learn the proper form of striking the ball, using both feet.
Hour-long sessions mean high repetition & increased comfortability.
With proper instruction, players are given the opportunity to correct their technique.
Empower Futbol's shooting clinics run as a 10-week program on Tuesday/Thursday at 6pm, Friday's 7pm, and Saturday's at 12pm, for boys and girls ages 10 to 17.
Spots are limited to 10 players per session.
"PUTTING THE PLAYER FIRST."
Learn the proper approach to defending 1-v-1 in various game-like scenarios.
Group defending requires many skills. After building on 1-v-1 defending, we move to group.
Finishing sessions with games provides players with the opportunity to apply what they learned with the ever-changing demands of a game.
Defending is an important aspect in player development that gets over looked. Empower Futbol's defending clinics run as a 10-week program on Monday/Wednesday at 6pm, and Saturday at 1pm, for boys and girls ages 9 to 14.
Spots are limited to 10 players.
We strive for confidence on the ball. Each player will have plenty of time with a ball at their feet to learn how to effortlessly take on players and improve their touch.
When players have proved that they are comfortable on the ball, we push them to perform at a higher speed with distractions, so that they can dominate on the field.
Self-expression is very important to us. Players should enjoy having the ball at their feet! We encourage players to try our complex technical patters, while also improvising and "rolling" with their mistakes.
When players are able to manipulate the ball at speed, they have control of the game. Let our qualified coaches teach you how to be more balanced, creative, and quicker with the ball at your feet. We run 3 separate, hour-long clinics as a 10-week program Monday-Saturday. See schedule below:
Monday/Wednesday 7pm, Saturday's 9am: boys and girls ages 9 to 11
Tuesday/Thursday 7pm, Saturday's 10am: boys and girls ages 12 to 14
Monday - Thursday 8pm, Friday's 6pm, Saturday's 11am: girls only ages 15 to 17
Spots are limited to 10 players a session.
